If you have an advanced stage of hypertension -- around a 160 systolic reading or more about 105 or more diastolic -- your doctor may prescribe medications. Even if your blood pressure is slightly above normal (higher than 120/80), you should speak to your physician. Together, you may be able to work out a few strategies to bring your blood pressure back into the normal range.

On the other hand,Low bp is considered less serious because easy to control, by adding the amount on salt and other spicy elements in food, can recover the problem.
Low BP is caused of lake of food nutrients vitamins etc. and irregularity in taking food.

80/90 to 120 is normal. Dont worry. Two bananas a day would be good for you. Sprinkle some kali mirch (Black Pepper) on bananas to make them digestive.
